The Lost Book Club: Read the Books Referenced in the Show

Do you miss Lost? Are you jonesing for a new book club (perhaps you've already read my book club selection for this month)? Are you slightly obsessed with any scene in the show that includes Sawyer reading? (Or is that just me?) Well, ABC is offering one solution to the no-Lost-'til-January-2009 blues: a Lost-themed online book club.

As ABC explains it, the book club section of Lost's official website will feature a list of "the books that have been either seen or referenced throughout the dynamic four seasons" of the show, and will include "a message board to discuss the titles, a synopsis of each book, along with when and how it was referenced in the show, and an introduction by co-creator/executive producer Damon Lindelof and executive producer Carlton Cuse."

There are many titles I've never noticed in the show, though I definitely recognize some of them. Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five, for example, has been clearly referenced in Desmond's storyline, with all the weird time stuff he experiences. Others have been used as titles for specific episodes, like Stranger in a Strange Land and The Shape of Things to Come. Oh, and of course I'll always remember Sawyer reading Are You There God? It's Me Margaret on the beach.

Sawyer + Judy Blume? That is my kinda beach day.

Anyway, click here to start checking out the Lost book club for yourself!

This is awesome. Now if only we could get the Lost detractors-- you know, the ones who say the show doesn't go anywhere or mean anything -- to read some of these things, perhaps they'd begin to understand just how smart the showrunners are.

This is a great idea! I love some of the books mentioned, and I can see it being a great motivator to get people to read more!

I loved the Slaughterhouse-Five reference! I don't think I could ever really follow a book cl;ub because I like to read on my own schedule, but as a huge Lost fan, I may have to check out these books!
